CONNECTICUT - Some shoppers are upset after they say they weren't told about multiple bomb threats made against Stop & Shop stores across southwestern Connecticut yesterday.

Police in Stratford searched the store on Main Street after an anonymous caller told state police that a bomb would detonate in the store.

Police say after a clean sweep of the inside they didn't find anything out of the ordinary.

State police say they were able to trace the phone used to make the threats, but the number belonged to a pre-paid cell phone.
